Blimey, Hazel. That was quick. I was still posting my second blog when your comment appeared.It made me jump.

I was about to say that this poem was a Ha! And remind people that a Ha! is similar to a haiku but much shorter. It has three lines and each line has one syllable.

Surely "confused" has two silly bubbles?

Roger Stevens said...

Ah. Well - even though the poem is one of the first Ha!s ever written - it's an example of the poet pushing the boundary, testing the limit, opening the envelope - seeing what he (or she) can get away with. It's the exception that proves the rule, the yeast that proves the bread, it's all about making rules so that they can be broken.
Also - I didn't notice it when I wrote it.

I laughed so hard I think I snorted. It was the mental picture. Nice Ha!
